Dr. Val Coleman is a psychologist and psychoanalyst who founded Stand InBalance, Equine Assisted Growth, Learning & Psychotherapy after experiencing the powerful and profound changes that can occur through partnership with horses. Firmly believing that facilitated interaction with equines can help us become better humans, Dr. Val and her team integrate psychology, group dynamics and systems to help children, families, and organizations maximize their potential.
An accomplished presenter, Dr. Coleman has been on faculty at Loyola Marymount University, the Newport Psychoanalytic Institute, and Antioch University. She is also a contributing author in the books Harnessing the Power of Equine Assisted Counseling and in the upcoming Equine-Assisted Therapy Activities for Counselors. An exciting highlight for her work as an equine assisted psychotherapist was appearing as a guest expert on the Dr. Phil show.
